F-A-M-I-L-Y Night!

Yay- Tommy is almost finished with the fire academy! I'm so proud of you Tommy Boy! Last Friday, they held a family night so we could all come and see what Tommy has been learning about for the past 17 weeks.

Tommy has such a supportive family- you guys are awesome!

We even got to check out the inside of the trucks!

Tommy's crew was responsible for putting out the car fire.

Isn't this silhouette cool? I can't imagine having to go in that building. It was really neat to go and see what Tommy has been telling me about first-hand, but it made me kind of worried about him!

The kids loved seeing Uncle Tommy...

...make that most of the kids, anyway.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 good!

I finally convinced Tommy Boy to go see Twilight. I've read all the books and loved them, so I wasn't too sure what to expect from the movies. I had heard a lot of mixed reviews, but- it was awesome! I LOVE the boy who played Edward, he was so perfect for the part. And, although it missed some minor story elements you get in the book, it felt so much more action-packed as it jumped from one major plot event to the next- so good! Here is a picture-Make that 2 pictures- Edward looks really cute in the second one (not as cute as Tommy Boy, of course!)It took a little while for me to get used to how the characters looked in the movie versus how they looked in my head, but once I got over that it was great! Well, this post has successfully helped me procrastinate studying for finals long enough...I'm out!
